Pattern Sizing: XS (4-6), S (8-10), M (12-14). I used the medium size.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes. I made the version with the overlapping front and long sleeves.

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I liked how easy it was to work with the pieces. The sewing was easy to do. The only thing I disliked was the time it took to iron the long hem. It starts from one shoulder, goes down the length of the tunic and ends up at the other shoulder (if that makes sense).

Fabric Used: I used a tan interlock knit.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I've sewn it three times. I would definitely recommend this others, especially beginners.

Conclusion: It's not complicated to put together, and I really like the style. I always wear a cami underneath because the front can be blown open and reveal me! It's also comfortable.

I like... Did you cut to your specific size? Does this pattern run big?

This is gorgeous. Shrinking away at the long continuous hem! ;-)

I cut out the medium size (which is equal to size 12-14). It ran a little big for me on my shoulders, but that's because I should've gone with the small size (8-10). I still love it because I can have a slightly loose fit while still looking nice.
